Very nice atmosphere.

Wow, this is a very powerful image. The addition of the silhouetted figure in the center back is what makes this image.

Love this one much. I, too, would appreciate a multi-monitor version (3840x1080 for me). Hope you don't have to crop much of the picture's upper region — the light-play is excellent!

"Gorgeous - Need Triple Wide Verisions"
I really love your night / dark wallpapers. Your mushrooms are what got me hooked and made me an instant member. I would love to see these as triple wide screen versions -- (5760x1200) if you please. ;) Shoot us an email when/if you do it, I'm certain others would love to have them too.

I have tried rendering the multiscreen quite a few times on a few different machines and for some reason it never renders the trees next to the fire. They were created using The Plant Factory and it seems the program is confused about who created them (IT WAS ME!!). They load as "locked items" and don't render for some reason :-(

"Multi-Screen wanted"
Beautiful work! I love how the colors flow from the fire, from yellow to orange to almost pink. Is this going to be available in multi-screen any time soon?

""Painted Canyon - Night" Fantastic"
Incredible work! Takes me back to when I was young and would visit the canyons at Lake Powell. Can't wait for the multi-screen render. Keep it up!

"Dual Screen Please!"
Still hopeful this one and Atoll are in the queue for dual screen versions.

a warm retreat to soothe the inner yearnings of the heart.

Hi, Great work. Can we have a version with just a small camp fire thing going on rather than the bright light in the middle, with the smoke wafting up past the rock formations, maybe with and without someone sitting there warming their hands.

"takes me back :)"
When I was younger, there was a Girl Scout camp during spring break to the Mojave desert in CA. Campfires were at an area with a big rock that reflected the light very much like this and it warms my heart.

What I would expect of a vision quest, looks like something out of a dream. Don't change a thing.

You have a gift for helping us remember our belonging to this sacred Planet and who we are in communion with the natural world. In Gratitude, Riverwalker

Just a really great wallpaper. Nuff said.

Another beautiful scene, looking forward to Tri-Screen very much.

Your dreams must be amazing, Ryan, having such images in your head.

Just breathtaking.

Wed February 17, 2016 at 10:30 am

The 5k Version is fantastic - I like the details around the Fire and the trees.

Wed February 17, 2016 at 1:24 am

Reminds me of Dark Souls. I love it.

Tue February 16, 2016 at 11:39 pm

"Fantastic !"
A really extraordinary wallpaper - Well worth the Membership.

Tue February 16, 2016 at 3:39 pm

"Painted Canyon (Night)"
One of your best, IMO!

Tue February 16, 2016 at 2:25 pm

"Very Nice!"
I'm not sure how I missed the original, but this one is definitely one of my favorites. Both versions are now in my background rotation!

Excellent Work!!

That is beautiful

"Painted Canyon (Night)"
Outstanding! I had wondered what this would look like as Night. Thank you.

Mon February 15, 2016 at 10:00 pm

This is stunning. It's awesome!

Mon February 15, 2016 at 8:55 pm

Totally epic... getting versions for my phone and desktop so I can have it everywhere I go.. A night shot was the way to go.

Mon February 15, 2016 at 6:56 pm

This is an awesome picture, thanks

Mon February 15, 2016 at 2:20 pm

"Lovely lightning"
Can't wait for the multi screen. Would be cool to see what some phrestoric type cave art would look like with that light...

Mon February 15, 2016 at 1:47 pm

Yes, the night version does "look nice," Ryan. :) This one should stay in the gallery, too.

Mon February 15, 2016 at 12:19 pm

"Painted Canyon ( Night)"
Wow!! One of your best ever!

Mon February 15, 2016 at 12:07 pm

"Painted Canyon (Night)"
Outstanding! As soon as I saw it, it caught my eye and I downloaded it. The rendering is powerful. I also downloaded your original Painted Canyon (I'm not sure how I missed it!?).

Mon February 15, 2016 at 11:49 am

Yes I will be rendering the multiscreen version soon!

Mon February 15, 2016 at 10:44 am

Love it. Am I asking too much for the triple-screen version?

Mon February 15, 2016 at 9:57 am

Ryan, you were absolutely right!

Mon February 15, 2016 at 7:40 am

"Love the Lighting!"
You never cease to amaze! This so draws one in to explore every crevice. And the new addition out on the point helps to add to the scale. Captivating!

Mon February 15, 2016 at 1:54 am

Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Sun February 14, 2016 at 11:07 pm

"Painted Canyon (Night)"
Beautifully done! It looks photographically real. I like when you do night scenery because that is what I prefer to use for wallpaper. It makes it easier to see all the icons on the desktop that way

I set this as my desktop background as soon as I saw it. This is my favorite "night time" wallpaper you've ever done!

Sun February 14, 2016 at 5:44 pm

'nuff said...thanks Ryan!!!

"Painted Canyon" is one of my highest rated renders so I thought a night version might be look nice.
